From ‘Listening to the Silence. True stories of a healing love from the spiritual realms’ by Nan Umrigar

“When the tongue is silent, the mind speaks;
When the mind is silent, the heart sings;
When the heart stops singing,
The Soul begins to experience it's original Self.”

Some say that we all choose our challenges before birth.

“There are more things in heaven and earth,
Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”
- William Shakespeare

On the 31st of January 1969 at 12.15 pm, in His room at Meherabad, Baba breathed His last to ‘live eternally in the hearts of those who love Him’, As per His wish, a record of His favourite song ‘Begin the Beguine’ was played seven times near His body.

Cole Porter - Begin The Beguine Lyrics
Album: Great American Composer Series

When they begin
the beguine
it brings back the sound
of music so tender
it brings back a night
of tropical splendor
it brings back a memory of green

I'm with you once more
under the stars
and down by the shore
an orchestras playing
and even the palms
seem to be swaying
when they begin
the beguine

to live it again
is past all endeavor
except when that tune
clutches my heart
and there we are swearing to love forever
and promising never
never to part

a moments divine
what rapture serene
to clouds came along
to disperse the joys we had tasted
and now when I hear people curse the chance that was wasted
I know but too well what they mean

so dont let them begin the beguine
let the love that was once a fire
remain an ember
let it sleep like the dead desire I only remember
when they begin the beguine

oh yes let them begin the beguine
make them play
til the stars that were there before
return above you
till you whisper to me
once more darling I love you
and we suddenly know what heaven we're in
when they begin
the beguine

Baba had indicated that of all the places on earth, Asia, more particularly India, is closest to the ‘creation point’.

Life would be infinitely more complicated if one who is not spiritually advanced were burdened by the conscious memory of numberless past lives …

It is said that prayer is when we talk to God, and meditation is when we listen.
